This PC adaptation of the bizarre Disney movie of the same name is fun, if a little too frustrating due to unintuitive controls and way too many spiders. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has hired your extermination firm to destroy the deadly Queen spiders and their lethal offspring before they take over the country. Once you wipe out the threat in the U.S., it's time to head out to the Amazon rain forest to destroy the entire herd... which is where the action gets really frustrating due to huge amounts of spiders that seem to descend from every direction. If you kill all the spiders in the house, you are congratulated by sampled speech and put back into the neighborhood ready to enter the next house. Some houses contain items that you can collect to help you in your extermination.The humorous sampled speech is a nice touch, as is the realistic movements of the spiders. A fun action game, if you're confident of your reflexes :)
